Mixed media, 24 x 18 in. on wood panel
Commissioned for the book cover, "The Storm-Tossed Family" by Dr. Russell Moore
In this wood panel mixed media work, layers on the surface contain an array of materials, including printed reproductions of the Nail Scarred Hand hymnal, acrylic paint, paper, two rusty nails, cardboard and most interesting: fabric pieces of an original JOHNNY CASH black coat to form a portion of the waves along with portions of one of CASH’s purple silk shirts. (The author, Dr. Russell Moore, is a huge fan of the Man In Black) The work also includes a built-in light source to highlight the windows of the floating house, showing signs of life – enabling the viewer to engage directly with the work.
